At Ruth Robinson Law, P.C., we understand how child support matters work and how they can impact your life. Our Birmingham child support lawyer is here to help.

How Does Child Support Work in Alabama?

In Alabama, child support is calculated based on the parents' incomes and the number of children in the household. This support is then paid by the father to the mother or guardian of the child to help with the costs of raising the child. If the parents have joint custody of their children, then support payments are split between the two parents.

Child support payments are calculated based on the parents' incomes and the number of children in the household.

How Is Child Support Calculated in Alabama?

Child support payments in Alabama are calculated based on the parents' incomes and the number of children in the household. In addition, the state of Alabama takes the cost of living in the area into account when determining child support payments. Parents are legally required to provide for their children, and they are also legally obligated to provide financial support.

Child support payments in Alabama are calculated based on the parents' incomes and the number of children in the household.

If one parent makes significantly more money than the other, then they will be required to pay a higher amount of child support. Parents are also required to provide health insurance for their children. Child support payments can help with this cost as well.

There are several factors that go into determining child support payments, including:

  • Number of children in the household
  • Incomes of the parents
  • Number of hours worked by each parent
  • Cost of living in the area

Parents are legally required to provide for their children, and they are also legally obligated to provide financial support.

Does Alabama Have a Shared Parenting Law?

Yes, Alabama does have a shared parenting law. Parents are required to share the time their children spend with them equally. However, the court can decide to grant custody to one parent if they feel that it is in the best interest of the child to do so. For example, if one parent is deemed to be a danger to the child, then the court can give full custody to the other parent.

What Happens if Parents Cannot Agree on Child Support?

If parents cannot reach an agreement on child support, then they will go to court to resolve the matter. In court, a judge will review the parents' incomes and the cost of living in their area and make a decision on the amount of child support that must be paid. Parents have the right to request a modification to the child support order if their incomes change or if the cost of living increases or decreases. Parents can request a modification due to a change in income or change in the cost of living.

  • “She communicated with me throughout the process.”
    She got pretrial diversion for me in my case. She communicated with me throughout the process. She also did not have to return to court with me for the final step but she did!

  • “She went above and beyond”
    Due to a misunderstanding, a warrant was issued in Alabama, even though we live in Virginia and hadn't been to Alabama for many years. We were apprehensive about the possibility of traveling to Alabama during these uncertain times. Luckily, Ms. Robinson was able to quickly and professionally interact with local law enforcement and the district attorney's office to get the case dismissed without us having to be there. Throughout her handling of the case, she went above and beyond to make sure we were aware she was doing everything in her power to assist us. We are deeply appreciative of her and her efforts and would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone needing representation.

  • “Amazing and highly recommended.”
    I contacted Ruth Robinson on a Saturday regarding a warrant that was issued for failure to appear. On Monday, she filed a notice of appearance as my attorney and filed a motion to have the warrant recalled. The court told her they’d recall the warrant and set a new court date. Ruth was very professional, diligent, and went above and beyond for me. She listened to everything I told her, requested me to send her several screenshots and filed the necessary paperwork to get the warrant recalled and a new court date. Amazing and highly recommended if you want or need someone who is passionate about practicing law and treating you like you’re a priority.

    Ruth Robinson is a thorough and passionate criminal defense attorney. When I found myself facing criminal charges for something that was completely bogus in a corrupt governmental atmosphere, she has worked with me diligently and continues to do so. I trust her completely and she has always worked hard for me. Better than any attorney I could ask for through and through.
